Foundations for Wardrobe, Part I

Leggings: I made them! 0L
Boots: Gasqhe Kaesha Ankle Boots, 0L
Necklace: Shiny Things Knotted Bead Strand (modded to black color), 1L
Glasses: Leah Posh Sunglasses, 0L

Let's talk basics.

Basics, simple clothing items and accessories used to spruce up your wardrobe, help add a personal touch to whatever you wear. They're like a solid foundation upon which you can build a house.  Without a basic wardrobe, your seasonal dresses and ensembles would make you look just like anyone else who bought the same fabulous new outfit you did.

What is part of this wardrobe?  Think leggings, jeans, shoes, belts, jewelery, purses, watches, cardigans, and jackets.  Things you can layer on top of, things you can use with outfits over and over to add your own style.

When shopping for a basic wardrobe, keep the colors simple and the textures to a minimum.  You want blacks, whites, greys and browns so they can pair easily with other items.  You also don't want your outfit to be loaded with too many prints or colors, or else anyone who looks at you will visually reject what they see.

The next few entries I write will cover a few items to incorporate into your SL closet, along with where you can find them. Feel free to share your own finds in the comment section.


: Professional Female Jacket (in inventory), 0L 
Belt: Rocker Female Belt (in inventory), 0L  
Necklace: Chuculet Ina Pearl (Cream), 5L (Yes, this necklace has been blogged to death, but when you find a good string of pearls, you find a good string of pearls.)
Dress: *{Bp}* Abstract Greyscale Mini Dress, 0L

This outfit was put together by finding cheap things and modding them, along with borrowing heavily from your default wardrobe library. The Professional Female jacket, for example, I edited to have it remain open instead of buttoned up.  The BP Abstract Greyscale dress is normally a beautiful display of whites and greys, but to make it a simple black dress, I edited the whole thing.

Until next time.
